But an even more troubling question is why do other "non law enforcement" departments need 750 million rounds of 40 caliber HOLLOW POINT bullets? :-k

FYI, according to the Geneva Convention (rules for war), NO ARMY IS ALLOWED TO USE HOLLOW POINT AMMO, EVER!! O:) They are required to use full metal jacket ammo instead. Yet here we have government agencies like the EPA, Dept. of Education, the IRS, NOAA, NASA and others purchasing HOLLOW POINT AMMO by the MILLIONS??? O:)

This begs the question of WHY since the hollow point round is DESIGNED TO KILL BY EXACTING THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF DAMAGE POSSIBLE TO THE TARGET? In fact, hunters in Virginia are REQUIRED to use hollow point ammo for hunting purposes to minimize the risk of wounded animals running off only to die a week or so later of infection!

But back to our government, why do they need all this killer ammo and who do they plan to use it on? Are they going to go on hunting trips now or what?

Here's a couple of links to more information on this:

More federal agencies buy multithousands of rounds of ammo

The US Government Has Ordered Over 750 Million Rounds of .40 Caliber Hollow Point Ammunition in the Last Three Years

Why does Department of Education need 12-gauge shotguns? aka, "assault" shotguns with 14" barrels.

And there are more links within these sites that I posted.
